It was 104 today… sadly, far too hot for me to muster up any energy to pull out our fall decor. Maybe next week! The good news is after our 3 soccer practices this morning, we decided to go for a family swim to cool off before church and a birthday party. My husband was home, so he decided to clean the pool a little before joining us. The next thing I know, my husband “screamed.” (He gave out a startled yell.) I knew it had to be something crazy…. We have found bunnies, lizards, and even a mouse in our pool… but this one was most disturbing!
In case you were wondering, it is a baby possum. As my husband opened the cover to the leaf basket, it tried to crawl out. (EEEWWW!) After grabbing some gloves, he picked it up. (EEEEEEWWWWWW!) I took pictures. Now it is in a cage outside this room. I kid you not. (EEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!) Someone please tell my husband we can NOT have a baby possum for a pet.
